Who is Jade Goody’s widowed husband Jack Tweed and where is he now? – The Sun | The Sun

JACK Tweed was left a widower at 21 years old when his wife, the Big Brother star Jade Goody, died from cervical cancer.

Here's all we know about Jack, and his life since his wife's tragic and untimely death.

Jack Tweed married Big Brother star Jade Goodyy shortly before she died in 2009

Did Jack Tweed marry Jade Goody?

Jack Tweet married Big Brother star Jade Goody on February 22, 2009, at Down Hall country house near Hatfield Heath, in Essex.

Jade wore a £3,400 Manuel Mota dress that was given to her by Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed.

Jack was sentenced for assault in 2009, and as a result, he was under curfew at the time of the wedding and had to wear an electric monitoring tag.

But Jack 21 at the time was exempted from his curfew for the wedding period, after then-Justice Minister Jack Straw intervened to relax the conditions of his curfew on compassionate grounds.

The couple gave OK! magazine the photographic rights to the wedding in a deal worth £700,000.

How did Jack Tweed meet Jade Goody?

Jack first found fame — and controversy— after appearing alongside girlfriend Jade on Celebrity Big Brother in 2007.

The pair had met in a nightclub in Essex when Jack was just 18 and had lied about his age.

National newspapers and magazines regularly covered their turbulent relationship.

Jack lived Jade in Essex with her two young sons, Bobby and Freddie, whom she had had during a previous relationship with Jeff Brazier.

The pair tied the knot just one month before Jade tragically passed away from cervical cancer on March 22, 2009, at the age of 27.

Big Brother star Jade Goody's death left Jack a widower at just 21 years old.

Jack had served six months of an 18-month sentence for assaulting a 16-year-old boy in 2006.

After the 2009 wedding, Jack was convicted of common assault for attacking a taxi driver the year before and was sentenced to three months in prison, just weeks after Jade died.

Jack, who was born on June 9, 1987, in Waltham Forest,  is now working as an electrician, running a company with his dad.

Is Jack Tweed still in contact with Jade's sons?

Jack revealed in 2019 that Jeff allowed him to reunite with Jade's sons lifting a ban that was put in place.

Jack has previously said that he respected Jeff's decisions to restrict access, telling Ok! Magazine:

"Jeff stopped me from seeing the boys. At that time, I was getting into trouble and I was off the rails — so Jeff was probably right to do that."

"Now he's seen I've sorted myself out, so he got in touch and said the boys had been asking about me.

"They came around to mine for tea and Jeff was there so it felt like an awkward first date!" Jack told Ok! Magazine.

It appears that Jack now has regular contact with Jade's sons, and Jack posted photos of him out with Bobby in 2021. 

Where is Jack Tweed now?

Jack gave an exclusive interview to The Sun in 2019, marking a decade since Jade died, revealing he was single.

However, in 2022, it was revealed that Jack had found love again, after falling for PA Ellie Sargeant.

It's not clear if the couple are still together in 2023.

Back in 2019, the 31-year-old had confessed that ten years after Jade's passing he still doesn't feel ready to move on:

“I don’t think I’ll get over it because I don’t think you can.

“I’m not going to not miss her. I’m never going to forget about her. I’m always going to think about her. I’m always going to regret her not being here.

What is Jack Tweed doing nowadays?

Jack revealed he had cleaned up his act and returned to his trade as an electrician in 2019, following a past marred by assault charges and convictions.

He spoke to The Sun in 2019, saying: “The last four years she would have been proud because I’ve sorted myself out.

“To be honest it could have gone a lot worse. I could have ended up dead. So I’m proud of myself that I’ve got to how I am now.”
